HIERARCHY OF HUMANITY

  • People honest with themselves
  • People in denial
    • Because of ignorance
    • Because of trauma
    • Because the truth is too terrible
  • Douchebags

The other day someone told me you can break all of humanity into “Jocks” and “Nerds”. That this becomes more true over time. Not only was I not expecting him to say that, I don’t think that’s true at all. That kind of thinking glosses over most of human experience and stuffs everyone into tight little superficial boxes. Most qualifying systems do.

This morning I was trying to think of more accurate classifications. This is an extremely truncated version because I don’t remember the rest, but maybe it works. Maybe I’ll add to it as I go, too.

You are not one of these bullet points forever until the end of time. Personalities are constantly in flux, dependent on a variety of influences. It’s almost like observing a quantum particle. You can only really tell what state someone is in under observation, and only for that moment.

  1. Hahaha to the person who said that. Man. But, you know it’s true. Sometimes I feel like my whole self is ambivalent. My beliefs, and values, and actions are prone to change so quickly according to my temperament or setting sometimes.
